/:                          Full-automatic Screw Machine is illustrated in Figs. 939, 940,

11                          tion the arrangement of the machine, which obtains its title from

,*                          the fact that it is largely occupied in the production of bolts,

t,                          studs, and screws, though various forms of handles and spindles

'!                          may also be cut from the solid bar or stock, and all this with

practically no attention whatsoever.    It will be seen from Fig. 939

>k                          that there are two sets of driving gear from the overhead counter-

I                          shaft; at A with crossed and open belts so as to rotate by spur

1                          shaft D.    The drum E is supplied with cam plates, which strike

|                          the studs  at K for the purpose of causing the  stock or bar

f1                          within the hollow mandrel to advance to the correct length, when

^                          it is gripped by the collet or chuck; while the cam disc M acts

'(,                          upon a lever, which gives a backward or forward rotation of shaft

tj                          N, thus moving the forks at p, and producing the forward or

/j                          reverse rotation of the mandrel, according to which belt is on the

' y                          fast pulley.    Another cam plate G acts upon the levers H and j,

'!                         that put the slides at Q in position for parting the finished work,

the tools being shewn at R, and the turret slide is advanced and

withdrawn for the operations of turning, screwing, rounding, &c,

, I                         by means of cam plates upon the drum F.
